    Default Anyone here know about White Smoke?

    I have heard of this writing software for a while but have no idea how good (or bad) it is. Anyone ever used it?? And how do you think of it?? good or bad?

    Thanks:)

    According to CNET reviews, it seems to be a good software.
    WhiteSmoke - Free software downloads and reviews - CNET Download.com

    Its grammar checker seems to be better than that of MS Word.

    But so far no software is as good as human in natural language processing/understanding yet. You can just use them to "help" you spot some errors; you cannot totally rely on them.

    It has its critics: WhiteSmoke 2009 - TopTenREVIEWS but many seem to enjoy using it and I think that Zeyarag is right in saying that it's better than Word at checking grammar. It won't be as good as some of the claims made, but get a free trial and see if it helps you.
